PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Rotnei Clarke scored 28 points and Andrew Smith had 24 points and 10 rebounds to lead No. 14 Butler to a 72-66 win over Saint Joseph's on Wednesday night.

Clarke made six 3-pointers to help the Bulldogs (13-2, 1-0 Atlantic 10) win their 10th straight game. Butler made its A-10 debut after leaving the Horizon League.

Chris Wilson scored 15 points, and Ronald Roberts Jr. had 12 points and nine rebounds for the Hawks (8-5, 0-1).

Langston Galloway airballed a 3-pointer, then missed a second attempt on the same possession in the final minute to end Saint Joseph's chances. Halil Kanacevic also missed a pair of 3-point attempts with the Hawks down four.

Butler proved it's going to be a threat to win another conference title, no matter the name of the league.
